Welcome to our center located in Marietta, Georgia. We are on the corner of Bells Ferry and Barrett Parkway, behind the Barnes and Noble bookstore. Here at our NAEYC accredited KinderCare facility, our teachers work closely with our families to ensure your child's educational experience is at it's highest potential. Our certified teachers implement a creative and interactive curriculum that will keep the curiosity of your early learner continually engaged. We would love to share more information with you about our curriculum,and are very eager to work with you and your family!
Babies grow and learn every day. Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing "home away from home" where babies can explore and make new discoveries. We know that learning through play is extremely valuable at this age and our Early Foundations® Infant program is designed to give babies the skills that will serve as the building blocks for a lifetime of learning.
As toddlers develop friendships, self-esteem, and curiosity, our Early Foundations® Toddler program will help them explore their world in a safe and nurturing environment. Our unique curriculum is based on the philosophy that children learn best through experiences. So each day is filled with fun activities that excite and develop toddlers, giving them the comfort and confidence to speak those first few important words, as well as make their first friends.
At this age, children are making new discoveries daily. And as two-year olds begin to exert their independence, our Early Foundations® Discovery Preschool program is prepared to open their eyes to a world of learning, sharing, and exploring. Our holistic approach in the classroom engages young minds with a blend of music, art, and movement, as well as the early education fundamentals they'll need as they continue on to preschool.
As preschoolers gain more self-esteem, they may feel ready to take on the world. Our Early Foundations® Preschool program enhances that confidence by providing activities to help children become problem solvers and lifelong learners. Through independent exploration, structured activities, and hands-on learning, children will work on early literacy, math, science, and social studies concepts. A healthy dose of running, jumping, and dancing keeps them active too.
Prekindergartners are preparing for the adventure of a lifetime – school. And our Early Foundations Prekindergarten® program is designed to get them ready by teaching letters and words, math concepts, and valuable social skills. With small group instruction, independent play in an organized atmosphere, and whole-group activities, children will have all the right skills to hop, skip, and jump right into kindergarten.
As children reach school age, our comprehensive full-day kindergarten program helps them explore, communicate, and create – all in a nurturing, small-class setting. Our team of expert educators has created a unique curriculum of reading, language, arts, math, science, and physical fitness that’s presented in a fun way to encourage a lifelong love of learning. Plus, our program is aligned with local and state elementary school standards, so children will be prepared to confidently enter first grade.
Even after school's out for the day, children need to be engaged in a comfortable, yet stimulating environment. That's where our Catch the Wave® program comes in. This innovative before – and after-school program allows school-age children to balance learning and fun through a variety of experiences. From homework help to fun physical activities, our program is designed so that everyone goes home happy.
The Math Adventures enrichment program is designed to teach important mathematics concepts such as geometry, numbers, measurement, and probability. Your child will learn about length, height, and weight. He will learn about shapes and solids. He will learn how to add, subtract, multiply, and count money. Math is everywhere and giving your child every advantage now will add up to success later in life.
Set your child up for advanced success with literacy through phonics, the study of letters and sounds. Reader books, games, and activity cards help your child understand the basics of vowels and blending syllables, giving him confidence and command of language.
Spanish Adventures provides young learners with a foundation for later success with the Spanish language. Music, games, children's Spanish literature, and other tools give children multiple opportunities to hear, practice, and see Spanish language for vocabulary and conversational development. Curriculum includes lessons on greetings, numbers, colors, animals, family, body parts and pets as well as how to get engage conversationally during common scenarios at home, a restaurant, or at the zoo.

My children have been enrolled at the Barrett Parkway KinderCare for several years and I've always thought the care they were given from the teachers and staff has been exceptional until this past Tuesday during the Atlanta snow storm. The staff's exceptional service and dedication to the students went beyond words. They were so caring and loving toward my kids, all the kids, during the snow storm. My son was on the KinderCare bus between his elementary school and the center for more than 2 1/2 hours. After what seemed like an eternity for a Mother waiting for her son's safe arrival, two of the staff, myself and another parent got dressed as warm as we could, grabbed as many extra scarfs, hats and gloves and headed out into the snow storm to rescue the kids and the bus driver off the bus. I cannot tell you how impressive their dedication and determination in getting everyone back to the center safely and reunited with their parents was. And, while I was waiting for my son, I watched the staff start to call each parent to let them know they were closing the center early due to weather conditions. And, in order to keep the KinderCare phone lines open to receive calls from worried parents, they made those calls on the their personal cell phones. At certain points, the staff had a phone to each ear. Hats off to Carla Bentley and her team for a remarkable job well done! I especially want to recognize the following people: Carla Bentley- she took into consideration her staff, parents and students when making caring decisions for their safe return home. Amanda- She loaned her own stroller to another parent to help him get his child home safely and was one of the staff who walked to the bus to get the kids back to the center safely. Ms.Elizabeth- She also was taking calls and making calls to parents on her personal cell phone while checking on kids and make the trek to get the kids off the bus. Ms. Awilda- She was taking calls in each ear, checking on kids and wound up staying at the center all night till some stranded parents were able to get their kids. Ms. Katelyn- She was organizing the after affects of the storm, getting the stranded bus, checking in with me personally to make sure we got home okay and letting me know when the center was reopening. Ms. Gloria- For keeping the little ones busy during the snow storm while the parents were trying to reach them. Mr. Louis- He was another bus driver stuck out in the snow storm for several hours getting the kids back to the center safely. Ms. Sara- I saved the best for last. Ms. Sara was the bus driver for my son's bus. She was so great in keeping the kids calm. My son said she kept telling me not to worry. All the while worrying about her own son on another bus on it's way back to the center. She is always a very calm and caring teacher and one that I'm thankful was there for my son. Thank you to all the staff and teachers at KinderCare. They deserve a metal for their exceptional work and great attitudes during a very stressful time.
